Cron jobs for NPB

Today I moved dionaea, hugin and suricata to the final build environment and I created some cron jobs to build the packages automatically every Saturday morning. I'm looking forward to provide new packages every weekend. This is the first test using a cron job to control the package build process so everything is still in the testing state.
